Types of collected data
You can visit our websites without giving any personal information. We only store access
data in ‘server log files’, such as the name of the file requested, date and time of retrieval,
amount of data transferred and the requesting provider, for example. This data is evaluated
solely to ensure trouble-free operation of the site and to improve our service and does not
enable any conclusions of a personal nature to be drawn.

Our website makes use of so-called cookies in order to recognize repeat use of our website
by the same user/internet connection subscriber. Cookies are small text files that your
internet browser downloads and stores on your computer. They are used to improve our
website and services. In most cases these are so-called “session cookies” that are deleted
once you leave our website.
To an extent, however, these cookies also pass along information used to automatically
recognize you. Recognition occurs through an IP address saved to the cookies. The
information thereby obtained is used to improve our services and to expedite your access to
the website.
You can prevent cookies from being installed by adjusting the settings on your browser
software accordingly. You should be aware, however, that by doing so you may not be able
to make full use of all the functions of our website.

Server Data
For technical reasons, data such as the following, which your internet browser transmits to
us or to our web space provider (so called server log files), is collected: – type and version of
the browser you use – operating system – websites that linked you to our site (referrer URL)
– websites that you visit – date and time of your visit – your Internet Protocol (IP) address.
This anonymous data is stored separately from any personal information you may have
provided, thereby making it impossible to connect it to any particular person. The data is
used for statistical purposes in order to improve our website and services.

Data Transfer for Contract fulfilment
For contract fulfilment, we will pass on your data to the shipping company assigned for the
delivery, insofar as this is necessary for delivery of goods ordered. Depending on which
payment service provider you select in the order process, we will forward the payment data
received to the credit institution assigned for payment and any payment service providers
assigned by us to process the payments, or to the payment service selected. In part, the selected payment service providers also collect this data themselves, provided that you create an account there. In this case, you must log in to the payment service provider with your access data during the ordering process. In this, the privacy policy of the respective payment service provider applies.

Data usage when registering for the email newsletter

If you subscribe to our newsletter, we will use the data required or provided by you
separately, in accordance with your consent, to send you our regular email newsletter. You
confirm your consent by clicking on the "subscribe" button. Unsubscribing from the
newsletter is possible at any time and can be done either by sending a message to the
contact indicated in the legal notice or via a dedicated link in the newsletter.

Data usage for email advertising without newsletter registration and your right for objection

If we receive your email address in connection with pre-ordering a product and you have not
objected, we reserve the right to send you regular email offers and information about this
and similar products from our range, such as those already purchased or pre-ordered. You
can object to this use of your email address at any time by sending a message to the contact
indicated in the legal notice or via a dedicated link in the promotional email, without incurring costs other than those for transmission according to the basic tariffs.

Contacting Us
On our website we offer you the opportunity to contact us, either by email and/or by using a
contact form. In such event, information provided by the user is stored for the purpose of
facilitating communications with the user. No data is transferred to third parties. Nor is any of this information matched to any information that may be collected by other components of
our website.

Use of Google Analytics with anonymization
Our website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service from Google Inc., 1600
Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043 USA, hereinafter referred to as “Google“.
Google Analytics employs so-called “cookies“, text files that are stored to your computer in
order to facilitate an analysis of your use of the site. The information generated by these
cookies, such as time, place and frequency of your visits to our site, including your IP
address, is transmitted to Google’s location in the US and stored there. In using Google
Analytics our website employs the extension, “_gat._anonymizeIp”. In doing so, Google
abbreviates and thereby anonymizes your IP address before transferring it from member
states of the European Union or signatory states to the Agreement on the European
Economic Area. Google uses this information to analyze your use of our site, to compile
reports for us on internet activity and to provide other services relating to website and
internet use. Google may also transfer this information to third parties where required to do
so by law or where such third parties process this data on Google’s behalf. Google states
that it will in never associate your IP address with other data held by Google. You can
prevent cookies from being installed by adjusting the settings on your browser software
accordingly. You should be aware, however, that by doing so you may not be able to make

full use of all the functions of our website. Furthermore, Google offers a deactivation add-on
for most current browsers that provides you with more control over what data Google can
collect on websites you access. The add-on tells the JavaScript (ga.js) used by Google
Analytics not to transmit any information about website visits to Google Analytics. However,
the browser deactivation add-on offered by Google Analytics does not prevent information
from being transmitted to us or to other web analysis services we may engage. You can find
additional information on how to install the browser add-on at the following link:

Facebook and stored there. In addition, Facebook is informed of your visit to our website.
This occurs regardless of whether you click on a component or not.
